Spray painting season continued with my first live stream. Despite the lo-fi streaming setup, the broadcast seemed to work well enough and I loved being able to share this creative process with you.
For those who didn’t watch the stream, here’s what I ended up painting!
My first ever spray paint art live stream! On this day, we painted a scene from Street Fighter, my favourite Pokemon Snorlax, a pink planet, and a waterfall! Watch me go through the process of messing up and trying to figure out the best way to fix my mistakes as I go!

Spread out the drop cloth. Cut the Bristol board. Brush the dust off the cans. It’s spray painting season!
Here’s a recap of everything that went down during Steff and I’s first session of the year.
Spray paint art is my new obsession. Despite being someone with little background in visual arts, newbies like me can make some really cool stuff right away. If you have the means and the slightest urge to pursue this art form, go for it! Here’s a list of supplies that will get you going!
Attempting spray paint art for the first time unlocked a sense of unbridled freedom from within. Coming from a place where my expectations were non-existent and I was partaking in this activity strictly for fun, I had a great time just making what felt good in the moment. That early win was enough to inspire another go around, but it also created a new level of expectations that changed the vibe around this latest session.
Can you spot the differences?
It’s that time again to break down the new items making their debut on my wall! Next time you pop into one of my streams, make sure to be on the look out for these new additions!
As I watched Nathan Salmon create a pair of amazing art pieces with spray paint for me, two thoughts swirled through my mind.
- Holy cow this process and end result look incredible!
- The basics of what he’s doing don’t look that difficult…
Though I figured that I wouldn’t be able to make the Ninja Turtles pose in front of a city skyline anytime soon, the fundamentals of creating planets, space, and stars seemed doable for a hack like me that’s never spray painted anything in his life. After watching a number of tutorial videos on YouTube, my wife and I bought a bunch of supplies and dedicated an afternoon to creating some spray paint art of our own.
